The all new iPhone 13 are several months away from the launch and might be launched in Aug-Sep this year, and the rumors are all over.
The 2021 iPhone 13 lineup might look similar to the 2020 iPhone 12 lineup, with four devices in sizes that include 5.4-inches, 6.1-inches, and 6.7-inches, with two of the iPhones being higher-end “Pro” models and two positioned as lower-cost, more affordable devices.
Major design changes are not expected, and 2021 iPhones will have the same feature set as the 2020 iPhones, but as smartphone companies do every year camera improvements, a faster A-series processor that could have A15 chip, a new 5G chip from Qualcomm, increased battery life, and a shorter smaller notch is expected.
As per the rumors suggest, at least one iPhone in 2021 would feature a portless design that would have wireless charging, Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo straight up denies this fact and says that’s not going to happen.
Apple is going to continue to rely on Lightning for the foreseeable future with no transition to USB-C and no portless design until MagSafe accessories are more common.
Further, we are expecting a smaller notch, with rumors suggesting we could see a shallower notch with a reduced height rather than reduced width.
Major change that is expected, Apple to introduce 120Hz refresh rates for Pro iPhone models, bringing the iPad Pro’s ProMotion technology to the iPhone.
Apple is said to be considering adding an in-display fingerprint sensor to the iPhone 13 models, which would be used in addition to Face ID as an alternate biometric authentication method, but it’s not clear if this will happen.
When it comes to improved camera technology, rumors suggest we could see the larger sensor in the iPhone 12 Pro Max extend to other models, along with the Sensor-Shift Stabilization feature for better auto-focus and stabilization across the lineup.
Improvements to the Ultra Wide lenses on the “Pro” iPhone 13 models with lower apertures for better performance in low-light conditions and improved autofocus.
Apple will use a 5nm+ A15 chip for the 2021 iPhones, with the chip set to be manufactured by TSMC. We haven’t heard specific details about the A15 chip at this point, but new chip designs always bring improvements in speed and efficiency.
Ming-Chi Kuo believes that the iPhone 13 mini, iPhone 13, and iPhone 13 Pro will feature the same 7P wide-angle lens with a ƒ1.6 aperture as their respective iPhone 12 predecessors. The larger iPhone 13 Pro Max is said to have a ƒ1.5 aperture wide-angle lens, a marginal increase compared to the ƒ1.6 aperture on the iPhone 12 Pro Max.
